30 Days To A Better Self
Posted by Niecy on November 2nd, 2012 under The Blog

 

As many of you know, I got married May 28, 2011. I have been enjoying my marriage!!! I enjoyed it so much that eating good and making love was the order of the day….everyday #dontjudgeme! Lol

At the same time I recognized my weight gain I also realized that there were a few folks I was allowing to bring negative energy in my space ( I don’t believe you lose friends and just think your real ones are revealed) So there were few things I wanted to shed- weight, people, and negative thoughts. I planned a 30 day journey to eat less, pray more and love harder! My goal was to pray, journal and workout, eat clean ( and make love) everyday because these are the things I wanted to become a habit, a consistent way of life.

With regards to the weight I decided to do something drastic and go hard in the paint. I called a trainer named Ellen Ector GymneticsFitness.com from Atlanta and signed up for a 30 day, 2 workouts a day program. I’ve tried many “lose weight by tomorrow” diets but this time I felt compelled to do things the right way: eat right and workout.

Day One

In times past, I would normally order some sort of meal delivery but not this time. I decided since cant live on a meal delivery forever that I would figure it out on my own. Of course this was challenging cause yall know I don’t like hanging out in the kitchen but here goes:

Sample Menu

Breakfast

Scramble w/ turkey bacon, peppers and a little low fat cheese
Oatmeal w/pecans ( from Jamba Juice)
Shake ( from DavidAllenNutrition.com)

Lunch

Salad w/Chicken Lowfat dressing
Shrimp & Cabbage
Shake

Dinner

Shrimp & Brocolli
Salmon & Veggies
Baked Chicken & Veggies

( I also made a curry,veggie soup that I would eat between meals if I was still hungry)

David Allen Nutrition

My nutritionist at David Allen is named Dr. Drew. He was featured on one of my episodes of Lets Talk About Love:) He is amazing! There may be a variety of reasons you are having trouble w/ weight loss or you may need specific things nutritionally to meet your goals. Dr. Drew helped me to get ready for my wedding so it only made sense to go see him again. The shakes that he suggests really help curb your hunger and they are low in calories. Dr. Drew can even help you if you live in another state! One of my girlfriends went from a size 22 to a size 10 with him! Tell him Ms Niecy sent you:) ( Dr Drew at DavidAllenNutrition.com)

My Workout

I normally train w/ Fitness Expert Scott Parker. He is awesome if you are looking for a trainer in Los Angeles, he is the one! (Truresults.com). Scott was traveling so I decided to call Ellen Ector, better known as Vitamin Ellen, to stand in the gap. She has amazing before and after photos on her siteĀ GymneticsFitness.com She really made working out fun! I’ve tried EVERYTHING w/her kickboxing, Zumba, Cycle, Pilates, Yoga, and resistance/weight training.

You have to try things to see what you like and also to switch up your workout so it doesn’t get boring. Vitamin Ellen also taught me how to run. In one month I learned how to run a 5k in about 35 minutes! She always says ” get comfortable being uncomfortable” and I did! I’m very proud of myself and what I have been able to accomplish:)


I’ve lost 10 pounds and more importantly a million inches! Lol


Tears get you sympathy…..Sweat gets you results!

If I can do it, you can too! Please keep my updated about your journey to a #betterself

    Hi Niecy! You are glowing, girl! I would like to be able to utilize the same resources as you, but I am unable to do so (financially unfit). Can you post some tips for people less financially fortunate to achieve similar results? Thanks, and keep up the amazing work!
